Reading Jumpstart

I have a reading certificate from the University of CA in Berkeley. I have tutored many students with a method where I carefully analyze their strengths and needs and then "coach " them with prompts to look at reading strategies that can help. The idea is that they then internalize these strategies which help them improve their reading as they read. I am retired from teaching resource in California.

Experienced retired first grade teacher

I have taught as a first grade teacher for 17 years and as a kindergarten teacher for 12 years all at the same school. I always felt that I was best at teaching students reading and language arts. I like to use an eclectic approach combining phonics instruction with sight reading, spelling and writing. It's important to make reading fun and to encourage a life long love of learning. My master's degree is in creative arts in education. Keeping up on new trends and taking many courses in reading and language arts have been a priority. I have earned a distinguished teacher award from [more]

READING ? Early first-stage (K to 2nd grade) Early reading involves saying and writing the alphabet and speaking clear letter sounds. Letters are written in upper and lower case, The alphabet contains vowels and consonants, and words may contain vowel pairs and consonant pairs.

Early vocabulary is picked up by hearing words used in context in story books and conversation. Some words or word sounds have different meanings and [more]
